Lunchtime Lecture: Queer History at Historic Sites

Ticket Price: FREE
Age: 13 & up

Event Category: History
Event Programs & Series: Marietta House Museum

June is Pride Month! Join Matt Champagne who will discuss queer history and how it is represented at historic sites. Champagne will focus on historic figures who lived before terms like ‘gay’ or ‘transgender’ became popular. The lives of famous people like Louisa May Alcott and Ma Rainey provoke serious questions about how to appropriately discuss the queer past because of the rumors that surround these historical figures and others.
